Glasgow head coach Gregor Townsend claims the whole of Scottish rugby should take inspiration from their back-to-back victories over French champions Racing 92.Warriors followed up last weekends Paris triumph with a 23-7 European Champions Cup victory over last years runners-up at Scotstoun.Glasgow were 60 seconds away from getting a clean sheet before Xavier Chauveau crossed but Warriors moved top of Pool A in some style, although Munster have two games in hand, starting with Saturdays fixture against Leicester.Townsend said: Its a huge achievement, says a lot about our players and their ability, and not just in attack and defence, the set-piece and the intelligence of their decisions.Its a great statement to say to our players, to say to people in Scottish rugby, that we can take on the best and beat them.We just have to take that on in the next two games. We looked at four or five wins as a necessity to get out the group. We have got three now, we have two games to go, which will be very tough.Glasgow were utterly dominant in the first half, crossing through Josh Strauss and Fraser Brown inside 13 minutes and went 23-0 up inside 47 minutes when scrum-half Ali Price grabbed his third try in three matches.But they were pushed back for the last half hour and never really threatened to claim a bonus point.We set ourselves really high standards and in the first 50 minutes we achieved them, said Townsend, who revealed man-of-the-match Finn Russell was a late injury doubt after suffering a calf strain in the warm-up.The last half hour we didnt play as well. We know we will have to play 80-minutes rugby when Munster come calling. They are playing outstanding rugby.Before the game, I said it was going to go right down to the wire and didnt think it would be a bonus-point game given how good their defence has been in the last few seasons. So to even be talking about it seems bizarre but we will look at how we can improve that last 30 minutes. Wholesale Jerseys 2022 . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 . Barcelonas entertaining victory ensured the defending Spanish champions retained their share of the league lead with Atletico Madrid two rounds ahead of their meeting in the capital. Real Madrid needed a late goal by substitute Jese Rodriguez to earn a 3-2 victory at Valencia to stay in third place and three points behind its title rivals. https://www.wholesalejerseysaaa.com/ .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. Wholesale Jerseys . Detroit and Boston are deadlocked, 1-1, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland could be forgiven if he was caught rationalizing instead of dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season. "I think everybody was kind of watching," catcher David Ross said. "Demp (Ryan Dempster) came out before he went to the bullpen and was just yelling that they lost. OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- As the Baltimore Ravens grind through another training camp practice, Joe Flacco drops back gingerly to throw.The quarterback has a metal brace wrapped around his left knee and is the only player on the field in a red jersey. Hes wearing No. 5, but it might as well read: Do Not Touch.Flacco was once considered a Baltimore football equivalent to Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, baseballs Iron Man. Now, however, Flacco is seeking to return from a season-ending injury in November that snapped his run of 137 consecutive starts.It was one of many injuries that contributed heavily to a dismal 5-11 finish for the Ravens -- their first losing season under coach John Harbaugh.In his previous seven years, Harbaugh compiled a 72-40 record, reached the playoffs six times and won a Super Bowl.Then came 2015, when everything went awry.Baltimore placed 20 players on injured reserve, eight of them starters. The downward spiral began on the first day of training camp, when top draft pick Breshad Perriman tore a knee ligament. The speedy wide receiver was supposed to fill the void left by the departure of free agent Torrey Smith, but Perriman never played a minute and remains in recovery mode with the Sept. 11 opener against Buffalo less than a month away.Flacco and running back Justin Forsett (broken arm) are back on the practice field, but neither played in Baltimores preseason opener Thursday night.The wait remains for Perriman, wide receiver Steve Smith (torn Achilles tendon), and linebackers Terrell Suggs (torn Achilles tendon) and Elvis Dumervil (foot). All four are on the physically unable to perform list and have been rarely seen this summer, even on the sidelines.They all want to play, I know that, Harbaugh said this week. Theyre all working really hard to play in the preseason, but were certainly expecting them all back for the opener. Well just have to make some decisions. Terrell Suggs is the closest. He had the injury the soonest. Hes already on me about practice, and Im holding him back right now. Hell be out there soon practicing. How muchh we play him remains to be seen.dddddddddddd The other guys are probably a little longer away than he is -- him being ready -- but well just see where we go.Theres also the matter of tight end Dennis Pitta, who had his season end in 2013 and 2014 with a serious hip injury. Pitta missed all last year and is attempting another comeback, but his bid was stalled by a sprained finger he received during a training camp scuffle.If it isnt one thing, its another.Third-round draft pick Bronson Kaufusi, a promising defensive end, broke his ankle in a low-contact drill and will miss the entire season.Thats a part of the game; its a part of football, Harbaugh said with a shrug. It happens for a reason, in my opinion. You have to look at it that way.At least the Ravens have Flacco, who spent countless hours rehabilitating his knee to be ready for the start of training camp. Baltimore used three starting quarterbacks in his absence last year, none of whom came close to serving as an adequate alternative to the franchise leader in completions, touchdown throws and yards passing.Obviously, last season, what he went through -- what a lot of guys went through -- to have him back and leading this team says a lot about his character, his toughness and why hes one of the best, said safety Eric Weddle, arguably the most significant of Baltimores offseason free agent pickups.Until Smith and Perriman join the mix, its uncertain who Flacco will be targeting on the outside. Newcomer Mike Wallace appears to be the most viable option, but he knows he cant go it alone.I cant wait until they get back, because I just want to see our group in full, Wallace said. I think we can be dangerous.Being healthy would be good enough.I think you always want to play at full strength, Flacco said. But in the NFL, thats not a reality. You go out there, you play your best, and do your best with what youve got.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
